'contradiction'
posted by forrestrose @ 2:46 AM

I thought I'd post the words here since no one on the VS board replied to it... I'd really love to finish this, or at least make it seem finished, before tomorrow (today)..


my life's been written
before it's over
I've become so predictable
that everything seems the same
but I know there's something more to this
I feel it in my emptiness
but I'm tied down by my insistent contradiction

my heart feels heavy
it carries oceans
and I drown in redundancy
and choke on stubbornness
and I feel it pushing down on me
I know this isn't right for me
but I can't bring myself to leave

updated version, very subject to change:


my life's been written
before it's over
I've become so predictable
that everything seems the same
but I know there's something more to this
I feel it in my emptiness
but I'm tied down by my insistent contradiction

my heart feels heavy
it carries oceans
and I drown in redundancy
and choke on stubbornness
and I feel it pushing down on me
I know this isn't right for me
but I can't bring myself to leave

I've seen this before
over and over again
I've felt this before
before I knew I wasn't really sure

and I'll keep searching here
for meaning to this life
but everything is meaningless
when you don't want to decide

my life's been written, it's over
and I drown in everything
and choke on wholly nothing
and this doesn't feel quite right to me
and I feel it closing in on me
but I don't think I know how to cease

this life's been written before
over and over again
and I know that I could be stronger
but I know this isn't the deepest I can dig myself

this hole gets deeper and deeper by the minute
I know it's caving in on me
and I feel you watching over me
as I suffocate in all my fear




I wrote all kinds of silly guitar leads to this that I probably won't use... so I have no idea how the song will end up in its entirety...

this hole gets deeper and deeper by the minute
I know it's caving in on me
and I feel you watching over me
as I suffocate in all my fear
these simple things are drowning me
I don't mean to be contradictory
but I never really know what to feel


... I'm gonna half-ass record it now. we'll see how the acoustics are in my new living room. ;)
